Ehpro Panther RDA Introduction
The Ehpro Panther RDA is the latest original atomizer form Ehpro. Long ago they were famous for making good quality clones, but now and for the past few years they’ve been making original atomizers and mods and have done a decent job overall. The Panther is a 24mm Dual coil RDA with a nice quality including a gold-plated deck and gold plated 510 pins and included BF squonk 510 pin as well. It’s available in 4 colours; Black, SS, Gold, and Rainbow each come with a black snakeskin 810 resin tip as well.

When I first got this RDA, it didn’t feel like anything new and innovative, but instead a mix of good things that work well already patched together in 1 RDA. Certainly nothing wrong with that. It’s a 24mm bottom airflow dual coil RDA with a staggered deck made for DTL vaping. The idea of it being a good flavour and vapour producer for DTL vapers. The included 810 resin tip is quite nice and gives it an unique look. Overall I liked this from the start.
Build Deck and Wicking
Let’s talk about the build deck now. It uses a dual straight post like you would see on the twisted messes RDA or mad dog RDA. They staggered the post holes themselves making it very easy to install the coils and they can be installed 1 at a time. It’s just as easy as a velocity deck.
The post holes are nice and large and can easily fit fancy coils in them and the screws come top down so it’s great for flat wires like fused claptons and such. The post screws are a good quality flat head grub screw and a spare set is included, although it would have been nice to have a set of hex as well. The deck is gold plated as well. Overall a very nice and easy to build on deck.
Wicking is pretty easy overall. It’s an RDA so not much to do. You will be dripping or squonking on it. Just place your wicks on the deck to the sides of the airflow holes and you are good to go.
Ehpro Panther RDA Performance
Performance wise, I used it as a dual coil RDA only as intended. My max recommendation is 4mm ID however 2.5-3.5 mm also worked well. I’d say 3-3.5mm is the most ideal. I ran mostly fancy wires such as fused claptons and aliens but also ran one round wire build. All of them worked well but I prefer the fancy builds personally. Overall the flavour was above average for a dual coil RDA and it performed very well. With smaller builds, you can close the air down for a restricted DTL vape as well and with bigger builds just leave it wide open. It pumps out some great flavour. Very happy with the performance.
Overall Impressions, Details, and Extras
It’s a dual bottom only airflow RDA. AFC is easily adjustable and free spins. You just spin the top cap to adjust and it’s very smooth. It comes with a Resin Snakeskin 810 drip tip, but sadly no 510 adapter. The drip tip is a little loose, it’s not bad but the 810 tips with o-rings will fit a little better than the friction fit one included. It won’t just fall out but can be knocked out in your pocket. The quality is really nice on this RDA. There is no threading but all the o-rings are nice and the right size to easily adjust air and to take off the top cap and put it on. It’s a 24mm diameter so won’t overhang on most mods.
The airflow is pretty smooth but can be a little loud if you draw hard. It comes with a standard 510 pin as well as a BF squonk 510 pin to use on squonk mods. Looks wise it looks good, the Panther name and the panther logo which is a panther head is engraved in the side cap and I think it looks pretty nice. They also include a spare set of flat head grub screws, 2 coils which look nice but I didn’t use them and they don’t list the material of the coils, screwdriver, or cotton.

Ehpro Panther RDA Video Review
So with all that said, do I recommend this RDA? I don’t like to do a hard yes or no, this one I’m going to lean towards the yes. It’s a great performing, great quality, easy to build on RDA that are currently on pre-order for under 25 dollars, it’s hard to go wrong with that.
I started vaping in late 2011 to quit chewing tobacco. over the past few years i got a lot more into the hobby side and buying and collecting a lot of gear. Fed up with the lack of good fair reviews i decided to start doing reviews late 2016 and haven’t looked back. I enjoy providing people with technical reviews that are fair and unbiased and from a place of knowledge to help them spend their money wisely.
